MOD16 for actual evapotranspiration measurement

This project is part of NASA/EOS project to estimate global terrestrial evapotranspiration from earth land surface by using satellite remote sensing data. MOD16 global evapotranspiration product can be used to calculate regional water and energy balance, soil water status; hence, it provides key information for water resource management.

Water and mining conflicts in the information age

My father was an olive farmer and very active on the valley olive farmer association in Peru. In the eighties, there was a tailings spill that afected the river water and the irrigated lands. Based on what they could understand of contamination and water chemistry, they had the iniciative of taking water samples and show them to water authorities.

Main predictive simulations for an EIA in mining

 

Impact assessment of mining projects on groundwater resources can be a challenging task due to uncertainty on groundwater flow regime, the complex numerical tools to successfully simulate stresses on groundwater resources posed by mining projects, and timeframe and budget of the EIAs.
